But the vid i posted shows no porn, no cursing, (in fact, the guy uses heck over hell), and has nothing to do with pbn v. mike. i just want to know where the line is drawn. I am just as much a supporter of pbn as I would ever be of mike, if not a bigger supporter of pbn, but i just thought the vid was silly, and thought other members would get a few laughs. if thats a no-no, my bad, i didnt see it in any specific rules, but im not stupid enough to post one of his "**** pbn" vids. I just want a straight answer. If its a bad thing, take it off. If not, let whatever amount of humor there reside.
Unfortunately, the recent spamming has caused some tension between our users.
****** has been added to the swear filter for the same reason almost any "company" makes it on the swear filter. Company names or websites that have been added to the word filter are usually companies who have repeatedly spammed PbNation. It also hurts that almost all the vids I've seen violate the swear filter repeatedly. Just because a user was banned, they aren't instantly allowed back by just making their posts into video form and having someone else post them. In the past he has spliced gay porn into "help" videos so we don't allow his youtube videos here because he might do it again.
According to the bannage log he posted porn here so many times we had to call him on the phone and ask him to stop. He started with the sketchy porno avatars, then started posting porn pictures with his B\S\T threads (with porn site watermarks), then moved on to splicing gay porn into his tech videos and would post them as "help" videos.
He has openly admitted to posting gay porn on this site. If our mods hadn't deleted it right away, who knows who he would have chased away from paintball with posts like that. He's tried to justify posting porn a couple times (by saying he was doing it in retaliation), but he'd actually start threads with porn or post porn in an otherwise positive thread. He would start fake News threads with titles like, "PSP and NPPL finally MERGE!!! New Fields! New Layout! New 6 man format!!!" that attacked everyone for playing paintball and then had links to more porn. His "explanations" never really covered that. We just can't have people doing things like that when there are underage users on the site.
He has claimed that he is turning over a new leaf and now he is all about promoting positive paintball. He really hope that is true. He has done some damage to the sport and we hope he can undo that with some positive works. People can change and we hope he has.
